AN ORDINARY MAN WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY MESSAGE
For more than twenty years, Rene Godefroy has been challenging audiences the world over to face their fears, embrace change, and kick their excuses goodbye.
His journey started in a tiny and impoverished village in Haiti. As an infant, several deadly diseases pounded him. Many of his villagers predicted he would not survive. But he defied logic, beat the odds, and snatched victory out of the jaw of adversity.
In 1983, he arrived in the US with five dollars, two shirts, one pair of pants and NO ability to speak English. While most people in his surrounding were complaining and making excuses, he saw the opportunity to seize the American dream. And he did!
Today he is the best-selling author of Kick Your Excuses Goodbye and one of North America’s most admired motivational speakers. Companies such as Aflac, Coca-cola, Cox Enterprise, Marriott Intl, and AT&T are a few of the top companies that have booked Rene to boost morale and inspire their teams to embrace change.
Rene has appeared on CBS’s 60 Minutes, in a segment that featured Colin Powell, and Anthony Robbins. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls him a “motivational hit” and the Miami Times calls him a “motivational guru.” But most people know him as a simple man with an extraordinary message that is quietly changing lives.
